About Arnold Schwarzenegger
Arnold Schwarzenegger rose to fame as an Austrian body-builder, then a B-list movie actor, and finally a headlining star. No one goes to see an “Arnie” movie because of his acting ability but we all pay a lot of money to see his movies anyway. As the result of movie earnings, plus other business endeavors, Schwarzenegger’s net worth is measured in the hundreds of millions.
Of course, this story wouldn’t be complete without the step from acting to politics and now Arnold is the governor of California, a state that is teetering on the verge of financial collapse.
Californians can rest assured that their government officials will pay their federal taxes, as long as they are continuously reminded by the IRS.
